Handel's Water Music is a suite written as entertainment for a royal dinner party thrown by England’s King George I in July 1717. The diner party was to be held on a barge sailing the river Thames, and hence the name Water Music.

King George and his guests dined and socialized on one barge, while Handel and his 50 musicians performed for them on a second barge traveling close by. Trumpets were extensively used for their ability to carry sound outdoors. The King enjoyed the music so much that he asked for it to be played three times as they sailed up and down the river.
